Is this an Arch Top or a Flat Top?
this is an arch top
Hi,I'm looking for this same snow white model but with a peg and some gold edges, I can't find it, is it still being manufactured? Thank you
Not sure what specific model you mean, our older instruments can be viewed via our product archive. All currently produced models will be up within our guitars section.
So beautiful! I bet it sounds fabulous. Jamie from One Machine and I chatted about these at NAMM 2019. He KNOWS I want it haha. I woulda picked it up already but theres no belly recess on the back... I know these are mass produced overseas but it would be a blast to see these just a smidge more ergonomic. Cheers
how many pieces of mahogany and maple, are made the body of the LTD ec 1001T CTM snow white?
Typically bodies will be made of three pieces of mahogany and tops generally are two pieces
Hi, description states "set-thru construction with a mahogany body and maple cap". I have been told that LTD series only feature a maple veneer and a solid maple cap is only featured in ESP guitars made in Japan!?
ESP instruments with figured tops will be solid tops whereas most LTD instruments will solely have a veneer. Some LTD models, such as this, will have a plain maple top.
Thanks! Interesting, I wonder how thick that plain maple top approximately is?
Also, description says “full-thickness body that is chambered for weight relief”. Why, does that give any tonal advantage or is it a tradition? Because I think a thin solid body with same weight would be more comfortable, stable and maybe easier to make.
About 15mm thick. Chambered offers a richer softer sound vs that of a solid body
